When I watched [STRIKE]this[/STRIKE] the documentary, [STRIKE]on him[/STRIKE] [STRIKE]then[/STRIKE] I [STRIKE]came to know[/STRIKE] understood why. [STRIKE]had he done that.[/STRIKE]
OK, so we are on to your next sentence.
You didn't need to say "this documentary on him". You established in the first sentence that you were talking about a documentary about a specific person. We know what documentary you were watching.
"Understand" is simpler and more natural than "come to know".
You can't say "why he had done that" when you have just said that he specifically didn't do something (in this case, he didn't get married).
